Manhunt continues for Polk murder suspect

October 21, 2020–6:11 p.m.


The manhunt for a Polk County man wanted in a deadly shooting Sunday evening continues.

Jimmy Blackmon is a suspect in the shooting death of his wife 36-year old Ginger Leanne Green Blackmon on Rice Road in Rockmart.

His pickup truck was later discovered at the East Rome Walmart and police have arrested Blackmon’s son after they say he picked up his father at the store and let him out in the Pleasant Valley Road area in Floyd County.

A post on the Polk County Police Department’s Facebook page asks the public in that area with trail cameras to check them for any suspicious activity.

If you see Blackmon, call 911.
